Resumo: OBJECTIVE: To assess the validity of the International Classification of Disease (ICD) codes for identifying patients with dyslipidemia in electronic medical record (EMR) data. METHODS: The EMRs of patients receiving primary care in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), Canada, were retrieved from the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network database. International Classification of Disease codes were first compared with laboratory lipid data as an independent criterion standard, and next with a "comprehensive criterion standard," defined as any existence of abnormal lipid test, lipid-lowering medication record, or dyslipidemia ICD codes. The ability of ICD coding alone or combined with other components was evaluated against the two criterion standards using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis, sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value (NPV) and Kappa agreement. (No specificity was reported for the comparison of ICD codes against the comprehensive criterion standard as this naturally leads to 100% specificity.). RESULTS: The ICD codes led to a poor outcome when compared with the serum lipid levels (sensitivity, 27%; specificity, 76%; PPV, 71%; NPV, 33%; Kappa, 0.02; area under the receiver operating characteristic curve (AUC), 0.51) or with the comprehensive criterion standard (sensitivity, 32%; NPV, 25%; Kappa, 0.15; AUC, 66%). International Classification of Disease codes combined with lipid-lowering medication data also resulted in low sensitivity (51.2%), NPV (32%), Kappa (0.28), and AUC (75%). The addition of laboratory lipid levels to ICD coding marginally improved the algorithm (sensitivity, 94%; NPV, 79%; Kappa, 0.85; AUC, 97%). CONCLUSIONS: The use of ICD coding, either alone or in combination with laboratory data or lipid-lowering medication records, was not an accurate indicator in identifying dyslipidemia.
